Another Collection of Some Good Google Drive Add-ons for Teachers ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

Another Collection of Some Good Google Drive Add-ons for Teachers ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Using Google Drive in the classroom | Scoop.it
Gerald Carey's insight:
There are not a lot of new add-ons mentioned here (although I have not seen the 'remove line breaks' one previously) but they are worthy of a mention.  Flubaroo and Doctopus get a mention as add-ons that help with marking student work.  There is also mention of Superquiz which can be used to mark quizzes created using Google Forms. I haven't tried it yet but it is on my list.

Google for Education: Google Forms: Introduction

Google for Education: Google Forms: Introduction | Using Google Drive in the classroom | Scoop.it
Google Forms is a simple way to collect information, conduct surveys, and perform quick assessments. Forms can be shared with a link, via email, or embedded in a website. Responses can be viewed immediately with the option to save them to a spreadsheet or Google Sheet.
Gerald Carey's insight:

This teacher outlines 5 ways they use Google Forms at their school.  They include: flipping the classroom and checking that homework has been done; using Flubaroo to test students; PLC - personal learning checklist - students giving feedback on how they are going understanding key ideas; feedback - from students to teachers or from students to students; and measuring progress - using a 10 point scale to assess understanding at various points in the lesson.

Gerald Carey's insight:

A list of 10 scripts that can be used with Google Drive.  It includes well-known ones such as Flubaroo and Doctopus but others that I have yet to explore such as autoCrat to give student's individualised feedback.

You need to be confident with scripts though.

Free Technology for Teachers: Three Google Sheets Scripts That Help Teachers Save Time

Free Technology for Teachers: Three Google Sheets Scripts That Help Teachers Save Time | Using Google Drive in the classroom | Scoop.it

If you're a Google Apps user there are three Google Sheets (spreadsheets) scripts that I recommend trying. These scripts can help you save time on on sorting, grading, and assessing students' work.

Gerald Carey's insight:

Although under the heading of Google Apps all three scripts relate to using and managing Google documents and so are very handy.

They include Flubaroo, Doctopus and gClassFolders.
